Kim Raborn Hanschen, AIA, Associate Principal
A native Texan Kim received a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy from the University of Texas at Austin and a Master of Architecture from Rice University. While studying architecture, she spent a semester in Paris, France. Kim was also awarded the Mary Ellen Hale Lovett Traveling Fellowship, which allowed her to conduct her thesis research in the Dharavi slum in Mumbai, India. Kim is motivated by the human experience and is passionate about work that has a positive impact on our communities and all of their inhabitants. She works closely with our clients to develop their vision and find innovative solutions to empower them to meet their goals. She finds the complexity of architectural challenges meaningful, engaging, and rewarding. Kim is on the Board of Directors for Transcend Architecture, a nonprofit that promotes human unity and dignity through architecture, service, and education, and is the managing director for Open Architecture Houston, which aims to inspire change through design, community engagement, and volunteerism.
Kim spends her free time in her garden, traveling the world, and camping with her husband Andrew and their daughter Freyja.
